My first excursion

3971 On Wednesday I took the day off work and attended my first school excursion as a parent helper.

We headed into the city for Science in the City. First we had a talk from Dr Karl, he talked about awareness and space. (very cool, the kids loved the count the basketball video, see it below)

Next we headed off to talk about bugs. We had a great talk from some insect guys who work at the Australian Museum.

After that we had some time to explore the Museum in small groups. If was great to see the kids so eager to learn new stuff.

After that it was time for lunch and then back on the bus to head home. A great day was had by all. Next up I will need to attend one of Matthews excursions.

Some new videos

Here are a few quick videos. This weekend the wind was so strong that we took the kite out for another fly. We really didn't have to try that hard to get it up nice and high.



And here is a nice quick video of us all tobogganing at Perisher. I have so much video to edit over the next few weeks!
